2/11 Principal Message

Mt. Vernon Parents/Guardians,


We have officially started Semester 2 of the 2018-19 school year. By the end of this week, we will almost be halfway through Quarter 3 already. Students are engaged in fast-paced curricula in all of their classes and will continue to have high expectations placed on them from a behavior perspective. Please continue to monitor your child’s MAV Sheet to review their daily points and to determine if they have any work to be completed for that evening.


As a reminder, Mt. Vernon MS will be on a 2-hr early release schedule this coming Friday, February 15. Students will be dismissed from campus at approximately 12:20pm. On Monday, February 18, Mt. Vernon MS will be closed for students. Students will return to school on Tuesday, February 19 on a regular schedule.


Please continue monitoring your child’s MAV Sheet nightly. This behavior management system serves to provide immediate positive feedback to our students while addressing areas in need of improvement. At times, the MAV sheets will also contain importance pieces of information for you and your family.
